If you are trying to make a design for your name card, there are several things that you need to be aware of so that you can make the best layout in a way that is simple and without complications. Name card printing in Singapore is rather easy to do and it does not require many steps in the process. Basically, you just need a good design of a name card and then you can simply hand it to a printing shop. But outside of the design itself, there are a few aspects that you have to consider so that your name card will come out perfectly.
To design a good name card, here are the things you should consider and choose for the best outcome possible.
1. Information on the card
First thing first, before you create the design for your name card, you have to be able to determine what information you want to put on your name card.
Ideally, it is best to keep it simple and not put too much information especially ones that are not necessary on your card. Make sure that you only put the essentials, such as your name, your phone number, your e-mail, and address. However, in this digital era, it is usually very important as well to let people know your social media handle or website so that they can access it and explore further about your company from these links.
Now, after you know what information you want to put on your name card, you can try making the design around it so that images and other elements of the design will not hinder the information and instead complement the look.
2. Card layout
If you are unfamiliar with professional designing applications or software such as Adobe Photoshop or Corel Draw, you can try choosing from the available name card templates available online. However, of course these design templates have limitations and are not as customizable as making your own from scratch.
If you can not pour your own idea into the software or find a template that suits your liking, you can hire a designer and direct them according to your ideas so that they can try to visualize it the way you want your name card to be.
3. Card stock
In making a name card, choosing the right card stock is very important. A card stock can determine the overall quality of a name card. A good design may not come out so satisfactory if it is printed on a low quality card stock. Thus, you have to opt for a card stock that can make your name card look proper and professional. A good name card stock can also determine its durability, because better quality papers tend to be thicker and will withstand tearing better compared to low quality papers. The quality of the card itself can be enhanced with a proper finish, such as coating so that it can last longer and even look better in the end.
